Former Westfield City Clerk Arrested

The former city clerk of Westfield has been charged after a complaint of misappropriation of city funds was investigated.

The Plymouth County Sheriff’s Office says 48-year-old Angela Lynn Sorensen of Westfield was charged with second-degree theft, a class “D” felony. She’s accused of using 89-hundred dollars in city funds to buy personal items. The funds had been raised for a public park and T-ball complex.

Westfield’s mayor had contacted the sheriff’s office last month after city officials discovered the money was missing. Sorensen resigned from the city in August.
